A couple of days ago, we posted our interview with Prospect writers/directors Chris Caldwell and Zeek Earl. The two discussed their sci-fi/western and how those genres can often be horror-adjacent, as well as talking about the world they created and how to make it believable. Today, we’re expanding on that film by bringing you an interview with stars Sophie Thatcher (“The Exorcist”) and Jay Duplass (“Room 104”, Manson Family Vacation). The duo go into detail about the physical difficulties of their roles, the relationship dynamics, and how the film unfolds its story.
“A teenage girl and her father travel to a remote alien moon, aiming to strike it rich. They’ve secured a contract to harvest a large deposit of the elusive gems hidden in the depths of the moon’s toxic forest. But there are others roving the wilderness and the job quickly devolves into a fight to survive. Forced to contend not only with the forest’s other ruthless inhabitants, but with her own father’s greed-addled judgment, the girl finds she must carve her own path to escape.”
Starring Sophie Thatcher, Pedro Pascal, Jay Duplass, Andre Royo, Sheila Vand, and Anwan Glover, Prospect had its world premiere at SXSW this year.
